The Guilty Reader Book Tag

Hey guys, this is Abi here,
And it's time for me to do my monthly book tag!
Now this book has been circling booktube for a while now, and I am super excited to be doing it (even though I wasn't tagged).
Even though I found this on booktube originally, I found the questions for the tag on travelineintrospect, so thank-you for that!

This tag was originally created by ReadLikeWildfire on Booktube, and you can check it out here!
Hope you enjoy the tag!

1. Have you ever re-gifted a book that you've been given?
I actually don't think I have! Not that I can recall anyway. People don't really get me books, they got me book vouchers, because they don't like the idea, I guess. And with book vouchers, they give me the choice to choose a book that I'm actually going to read instead of picking a random book.

2. Have you ever said you've read a book when you haven't?
This I actually have done. I do this with books that I've started, or I've researched, so I don't get caught out, but I haven't always read the books I say I have. I haven't done this for a while, because I don't really talk about books much (except on here) but I have actually done this. So ashamed...

3. Have you ever borrowed a book and not returned it?
Again, not done this. Although I didn't pay that much attention to the date when I had to return books (library books) because I always knew that I'd be able to finish them, I did try to be conscious as to when I had to bring them back. And I always managed it too, somehow.

4. Have you ever read a series out of order?
I haven't deliberately, but I did once read the fourth book in the Pushing the Limits series. But considering I haven't picked up the series since having read that book, I don't think it matters too much, especially as I didn't make out any plot holes that I would have missed in the first three. It stood pretty well as a standalone really, so no harm done I guess.

5. Have you ever spoiled a book for anyone?
I haven't done this either! I've been spoilt for books such as Allegiant... and Seven Minutes in Heaven, but I don't think I've ever spoilt anyone. But nevertheless, sorry if I have!

6. Have you ever doggy eared a book?
I used to do that a lot when I was younger! But this was before I started blogging, and caring about what state my books might be in. I'm still awful for keeping the condition good, like lines on the spine, but I try to take a lot more care now, and I never doggy ear my pages now, so at least I've learned about it!

7. Have you ever told someone you own a book when you do?
No, I haven't! Although I am super protective about my bookshelf, so in the unlikely event where someone does actually borrow one of my books, I'm always super hesitant, I'm always repeating to take good care of it, though even if they wrecked it, I probably wouldn't say anything anyway.
But, no, I'm always truthful if I own a book.

8. Have you ever told someone you haven't read a book when you have?
What? Do people actually do this? Why?

9. Have you ever skipped a chapter or a section of a book?
Don't think I've done this either! If I skipped a chapter, or a section, I might miss an important part of the book, and then the whole thing would be out of wack!
Besides, you wouldn't get the whole impact of the book if you skipped a part, even if the person's perspective you were reading from you didn't particularly like...

10. Have you ever bad mouthed a book you actually liked?
Maybe a couple of times, but not seriously!
